medium green pepper
plus more to taste
15 oz can mandarin oranges, drained (reseve the juice)
reserved mandarin orange juice
Making the filling:
In a small dish, mix together taco seasoning and garlic salt. Set aside.
Pour 1 TBS olive oil into a skillet and warm on medium/high heat for about 1 minute.
Add chicken and cook until one side begins to turn slightly brown (about 4-5 minutes).
Add green pepper and corn. Cook until peppers become slightly soft and chicken is cooked through.
Evenly sprinkle seasoning/salt mixture over your chicken/veggies. Stir until evenly coated.
Cook until the chicken and veggies become slightly browned.
Add 1-2 TBS of the reserved mandarin orange juice and cook until all the liquid is absorbed.
Remove pan from heat and gently mix in the mandarin oranges, slightly breaking them up as you stir. Set mixture aside.
Putting it all together:
Preheat a griddle to about 325 degrees F. *
Place one tortilla on the griddle, adding about ¼ cup cheddar cheese to that tortilla. Makign sure it is evenly spread.
Add about ¼ to ½ cup of chicken mixture (depending on the size of your tortilla).
Top with another ¼ cup of cheese and a second tortilla.
Cook until the bottom tortilla is browned, then flip and cook until the second side is brown and cheese is melted.
Repeat with remaining tortillas and cheese until you have used all the filling!
*Note, you can make these on a non-stick pan over the stove. I prefer to use a griddle because I can make 2-3 at a time!
